Can't find it? Just build it

I was trying to find a nice and simple rack to fit my axles and tranny gages. All I could find was plastic crap with angles coming out of a star wars movie. I finally decided to build my own.
Thank god I have friends that own metal shops.

Material: aluminium 3 mm

First off, a stop at the cutting shop.
Computer assisted Water jet cutting machine.

Then a little stop at the metal press shop.

A little paint job by myself.

Fitting the gages.

finished product

A little wire ring and the install.

All done in 1 hour.

I think that I am going to do a lot more stuff myself. At least I get what I want and don't have to compromise.

Next step... I am making an aluminium dashboard.
